Well if I bump into you again I'll know to say hello.
LeatherFoot Toronto: G&G, SC, Corthay, Carmina, Alfred Sargent - Page 4
Styleforum Top Picks
I didn't check out as many pirce tags as perhaps the person below, but the calfskin shoes and boots I did look at ranged from $510 - 570. On par (and in some instances better) with prices I have seen from US retailers.
This will now be my most visited thread on SF.
To the LeatherFoot crew - congrats, welcome, and good luck! Feel free to give us a little incentive to start doing business with you. As I new business owner I know the importance of cash flow and the dilemma of discounting. Accordingly, I can't say that I'm demanding additional cost savings on your apparently already competitive pricing; I think some regular and comprehensive, Epaulet-style insider communication would be more than enough to make me a loyal customer!
In summary, feel free to post here often. (MTOs, when executed properly, are a great way to get this place buzzin'.)
I look forward to seeing the store on my next trip out East.
This is a dangerous place. I walked in there on Tuesday for the first time, quite blissfully unaware that I had a desperate need for a pair of midnight blue Carmina wholecuts in shell.
I showed great restraint by not making an impulse buy, but the damned shoes haunted me all night. So I popped back up at lunch and made them mine>
Man, Toronto needed a place like this in the worst way. Very strong selection of G&G, St. Crispin and Carmina, and it's only going to get better as other brands roll in (I'm particularly keen to check out Alfred Sargent and Crockett & Jones). Anyway, I'll post up more pics from the shop visit later this evening.
What other midnight blue shoes did you see? I am looking to buy a pair as well.
Great to see what looks like a worthy addition to the TO menswear scene. I won't be able to go by for a few days, any idea what the prices are like on the Saphir products? I was about to order from THP but would prefer to support a local business if prices are reasonable.
They had a few St. Crispin's in blue, but they weren't as dark as the Carmina wholecuts.
Not sure on pricing on the Saphir products, but I would expect it to be competitive as well. I know I plan to make a list of shoecare needs and just go and get it from them. Shipping kills on importing small stuff like that.
Some St. Crispin's shots:
Thanks, I kind of expected that. Unfortunately, that's precisely what I'm after this time around LOL
These are taken in direct sunlight, so this is as blue as they will ever look:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
The shell will lighten with some wear and some time in the light... and then darken again when it gets some Saphir Reno.
Sweet wholecuts btw, Rain last?
